In today's quick touch and run world, there's something beyond valuable in the simple idea of interaction.
Rational discourse, what a concept, huh...
...but let me ask you, if you were in a church and, instead of singing hymns, everyone had to converse with their neighbor following the sermon, wouldn't you expect to it to be civil.
I have faith this will be a place where folk will want to come in out of the cold, sit on their right hand (you know, the finger pointing one) and actually, really communicate with each other.
I know I can do that and I am looking forward to hearing from others who feel the same way.
